When you’re investing your best time into your best activities, that is true productivity.
Amber De La Garza
Feeling overwhelmed, out of time, too busy working in your business but not on your business?
Being an entrepreneur means having a never-ending to-do list. And that’s a good thing: it means that there is still work to be done tomorrow. But staring down an ongoing task list can affect your ability to effectively prioritize and focus, leading to feelings of overwhelm (and possibly an overwhelming desire to curl up in bed). In our efforts to check items off, we become perpetually busy while not truly getting things done.
We get it. We’ve been there.
True productivity involves an underlying essential skill set that some entrepreneurs come by naturally… and some don’t. Luckily these skills can be learned and reinforced with practice, which is why we’ve invited Amber De La Garza, the Productivity Specialist, to share her expertise with us.
